Outstanding students celebrated in annual Faculty Student Awards 2020

More than 100 students were recognised as part of the annual Faculty Students Awards for 2020.

The Faculty Student Awards recognises and celebrates the achievements of some of our best and brightest students for their outstanding academic performance in the previous year.

In absence of a formal, in-person event, we decided to celebrate the success of our students by developing a dedicated website that hosts congratulatory messages from Professor Wayne Hodgson, Deputy Dean (Education), Faculty alumni and previous Student Award winners, as well as messages from Heads of School. The website also features videos from some of our winners, reflecting on what it was like to push beyond all of the challenges that came their way in 2020.

Enya Martic, is a Monash medical student, who was awarded the Year A Faculty Prize, an award that recognises top first-year Bachelor of Medical Science and Doctor of Medicine students from the graduate entry program in Churchill.

“I’m super honoured to be awarded the top-scoring student for first-year graduate medicine. Last year was such a tough year during COVID,  and often I wasn’t motivated to study but what kept me going was knowing that I’m studying for more than just myself and the ability to succeed at the end of the exam. I really wanted to solidify my pre-clinical knowledge and understanding of those core concepts, so that I can make the most of the clinical years”, says Enya.

“Congratulations to all of our prize winners. I have no doubt that the dedication and commitment you have shown in your studies, especially in such challenging times, will lead you to rewarding and successful careers. We hope you take this opportunity to celebrate and share this website with your friends and family as this is a significant milestone that deserves to be celebrated”, says Professor Christina Mitchell AO, Dean of Monash Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences.
